Frankenstein, Jr. Big Little Book!

hb_frankjr_blb

Here's an item I actually have in my own collection of books, and I've probably already featured it on "Children's Book Theatre" on the Random Acts of Geekery by now (although not as I'm writing this post in April of '09 - yes, I do work way ahead on these!)... you can probably expect it'll show up here, too, sooner or later!

As you can see, when it came to these, AHI spent no expense on the card art (yes, that's right, I said "spent" not "spared", and I meant it!)!

Monsters Unleashed #2!

The Monster is prominently featured in this comic, one of Marvel's attempts to crack the black-and-white magazine-size comic market in the 1970s!

Aargh! #2!

I'm amazed Marvel got away with this cover, featuring as it does the Lugosi Dracula and the Karloff Monster!

Marvel Tales #96 Cover!

This may be the source of the story reprinted in the "Where Monsters Dwell" issue I featured a few days back... a very different appearance for the Monster here, isn't it?

This Vic's Frankenstein jiggler is of much more recent vintage than yesterday's, but I'm still not sure when it came out!

This 1970s jiggler made by AHI features the most helpless-looking Monster toy ever created, methinks!
